Today Synacktiv, a security and research company has released a report on their findings after taking a deep dive into the current and passed DJI Go 4 App on Android.

As part of their investigations they have highlighted some areas that raise some fairly large concerns with the potential behaviour and risk within the Go4 App.

Specially these include the facility to remotely trigger an update to the app outside of the Android Play Store safety net.

Concerns around the Weibo integration with in Go4 that could allow apps to be installed on users devices and issues with the app not closing down correctly or starting to run in the background on its own.

The information and findings of this have been backup and verified by GRIMM.

Further to this DJI have now released a statement as well questioning some of these findings as well as denying others altogether.

Users of the Android version of the app should look at the data for them selves and make up their own mind of what they feel is necessary from a safety and data security point of views.

In the attached video this is all explained in a little more detail as to what this is all about should people be interested in knowing more.
